The Joy of Pilates,
and All it Can Do for You
The Pilates method of exercise offers a total body workout program that enhances your quality of life through improving strength, flexibility, control, breath, coordination, and body awareness. After a few sessions, you will appreciate improvement in your posture, core strength and balance.
Pilates equipment featuring ropes and springs, developed by Joseph Pilates, are used to assist and resist a patient’s full range of motion. All exercises can be modified through alignment and support and should be pain-free. Each fifty-minute session is one-on-one with the physical therapist and is specifically designed to achieve your treatment goals. Mat exercises are also provided to reinforce your specific exercises for home practice.
Physical Therapy Packages
We offer individual Pilates sessions, duos and trios on equipment and small group classes.

PATIENT & CLIENT
"Alison is the best PT in Santa Cruz. I have not met as knowledgeable, dedicated nor as motivating a therapist anywhere else in all my history of body work. She can help you achieve your goals."
"I walked out not only feeling physically better but having a better understanding of my body and how it works. I highly recommended Alison to any family or friends in the area!"
"Alison has such a wealth of knowledge and experience...
If you are looking for an amazing physical therapist or private Pilates instructor, I would look no further!"
“We four siblings, ranging in age from seventy eight to eighty five years have received Pilates training from Alison Palic for about eight months. We vary in our fitness levels, but have all greatly benefited from Alison’s instruction. We have increased our core strength learned the benefits of proper breathing, and improved our body awareness.
Alison has three reformers along with other group equipment that we use to work different muscles. Alison is a licensed physical therapist as well as a Pilates instructor, so she understands the body. She makes our workouts fun, and we’re really happy to have found her. We may keep getting older, but we’re stronger.”
